Pt. 1 ILNP Fall 2015 Collection, thus it begins!

Fresh off the block, not even on the site yet but Barbra from ILNP has already started showcasing some of her Fall 2015 collection on social media. To wet your appetite, today I’ll start off with three of the 17 polishes. They include, Multichromes, Ultra Chrome flakies, Holographics, and mega shiny glitter bombs. I want to emphasize that this indie polish company has been around a long while, has excellent customer service, and fabulous products you can trust. They will be available for Pre-Order on September 4th. Let’s get started!

Greatness is a stunning addition to ILNP’s line of Multichromes. Note: I do not have the detailed descriptions on these polishes as they haven’t been written yet! So, I’ll just wing it the best I can for now.

Greatness is what a multichrome should be. Super glossy, opaque and not streaky. It's one of my faves!

Greatness is a multichrome and wow, the formula is amazing! More opaque than a lot of multichromes or duochromes I've used. 2-3 coats but I reached full opacity in 2! It's a rich satiny bronze that shifts to gold and ruby and copper. Maybe even some green indoors!

Overnight Bag is the perfect shade and finish for Fall!

Overnight Bag is a glossy plum raisin with holographic particles thrown in. I know, the bottle throws a bit of an eggplant hue, but it leans more to the berry side of the spectrum.

Next we have Glory. The gorgeous Ultra Chrome Flakies just keep coming and each one is drool-worthy. It’s a perfect shiny compliment for any fall shade.

Here is the Ultra Chrome Flaky, Glory, over Overnight Bag, plus a clear topcoat. I did NOT want to take this combo off!

Glory, a new Ultra Chrome Flaky! Since I'm very early in putting these out here, I don't have full detailed descriptions of the Fall 2015 collection. So I shall do my best! Once these are listed on ILNP.com, you can get their details then. Glory is a 'glorious' new Ultra Chrome Flaky polish in a clear base. From my observation, the UCFs shift from bronze, to gold, to magenta and even to green.

Here are a few fabulous facts for your shopping pleasure.

What is your vegan/cruelty free policy?
ILNP absolutely does not test our products on animals nor do we purchase materials from suppliers that do. We make a conscious effort to avoid purchasing animal/insect derived materials like carmine and guanine/pearl, etc. as there are plenty of synthetic alternatives that perform the same or even better.

Are your nail polishes 3-Free?
Yes! All ILNP nail polishes are 3 free! They DO NOT contain Toluene, Formaldehyde, or Dibutyl Phthalate.

What does 3-Free mean?
3-Free means that our nail polishes do not contain Toluene, Formaldehyde, or Dibutyl Phthalate. These 3 ingredients were previously used in most nail polish formulations until recent studies found them to be potentially harmful or irritable to humans. While these chemicals aren’t illegal to use in nail polish (although California law requires special labeling if used), most large brands have already moved to 3-Free formulas at the urge of educated consumers as well as organizations that campaign for safe cosmetics.”

Metropolis Ultra Chrome Flaky by ILNP, welcome to the city!

I have really enjoyed swatching this full line of Ultra Chrome Flakies, a whopping 13 of them, from ILNP! Of course you may already know what a fabulous indie polish maker this is. Today we have Metropolis. I always think of that old scifi movie from back in 1927. But not the original. The one with music enhanced by the 80s group Queen. LOL Is there something wrong with me? I admit it, I’m a sucker for Freddie Mercury’s voice. But before I get waaay too far off course, here is this magical Ultra Chrome Flaky over black and the accent nail is the beautiful linear holo by ILNP, Mega.

I couldn't help myself. I just had to try to create a Metropolis sky scene on my accent nail! I used the gorgeous linear holo by ILNP called Mega, painted on black city buildings and accented with flakies from Metropolis! Then painted a thin coat of Metropolis over black.

Metropolis is described as, "Metropolis is delicious! This beautiful Ultra Chrome Flakie shifts through super vivid shades of pink, fuchsia, purple, green, and even blue. The vibrant color shift in this nail polish is something you have to see to believe!"

I’m not sure what Barbra from I Love Nail Polish will bring us next, but I guarantee it will be every bit as phenominal as the UCF collection is!

Neon Rosebud Ultra Chrome Flaky polish by ILNP is BRILLIANT!

How does one find a favorite out of 13 perfect Ultra Chrome Flakies from ILNP? Not really possible but Neon Rosebud is pretty much up there on my list. Maybe that’s why I have been saving it almost the last. I nearly swatched her over black, but I have been looking for a nail art idea to use the shade I finally chose for undies. Almost Midnight by L’Oreal won out over black for this look. It’s a deep deep eggplant creme. A perfect fit for a flaky as brilliant as Neon Rosebud!

Neon Rosebud is perfect over any shade, but I chose the very deep eggplant creme by L'Oreal, "Almost Midnight".

Neon Rosebud is described as, "Neon Rosebud is just...wow. The primary color range of this beautiful nail polish travels through super vivid fuchsia, green, and gold with hints of other colors in different lighting! A true stunner that lives up to its name!"

For this look I simply used a single diagonal piece of pink foil striping tape over the base color. Then filled in half the nail with Neon Rosebud, then topped with a single layer of topcoat.

I'm love this shifting from brilliant pink to gold to green, even orange!

My last swatch of these fab flakies will be Metropolis. I’m still pondering what look I should go for. Which UCFs have you picked up from ILNP and how are you wearing them? I would love to hear from you!

Dragon’s Breath by Chloe & Bella, will take your breath away!

The moment I caught a glimpse of Dragon’s Breath on Facebook, I knew I’d be dying to swatch this flaky beauty. Low and behold, it showed up in my mailbox! Flakies are so wonderfully shiny, color shifting and easy to remove. And this one does not disappoint.

Look at this Dragon's Breath. It will leave you breathless!

Look at this Dragon’s Breath. It will leave you breathless!

The application was smooth, easy and dried pretty fast. Perfect formula! Dragon’s Breath is described as: “a breathtakingly beautiful nail polish that shifts through pink to lavender to gold, and contains an electrifying platinum colored sparkle. This is not a glitter polish! Dragon’s Breath is colored by chameleon flakes and infused with super-shiny silver covered flakes that give it a shine that will knock your socks off!” The colors range from Pink/Lavender/Gold with platinum/silver sparks.

Dragon’s Breath will dry completely smooth on the nail. And it is totally easy to remove, just like regular nail polish. It gives light coverage in one coat and full coverage in two coats.

This is an amazing flaky polish that's so smooth you'll do a double take. Not only at the color shifting properties, but it's so opaque, you will only need two thin coats!

Here is a macro shot of only two coats of Dragon's Breath! So shiny and so much color play, you'll definitely be the heat of the party.

China Glaze does neon brilliantly!

China Glaze does neon brilliantly!

I’ve been sitting on this gorgeous neon for a couple of months now. And I’m kicking myself! Yesterday’s NOTD happened using China Glaze “Grass Is Lime Greener”. It’s from the spring release collection City Flourish and I fell instantly in love with this green. It’s neon, but a softer, gentler neon.

GILG is a perfect yellowish green that lights up on the nail. Seriously lights up! I was driving home from town last night at dusk and my nails seemed to glow. Not to mention how it makes your skin seem a bit more tanned. As with all neons, I always layer it over a coat of white to make it pop. Then with this mani I remembered I had some cute little fimo slices of kiwi so I cut them in half and placed them on my half moons. Then I added a thin layer of Krystal top coat by Nubar for that extra element of sparkle.

This is just one of those summertime manis I could rock for days. Well, at least until my next nail mail arrives! Any day now 🙂 I’m about to embark on our beach vacation and trying to decide which polishes I’m bringing with me. Definitely neons! So what types of polishes do you take on your vacation? Brights, nudes, textures? Oooh, wouldn’t it be cool if someone would come up with a neon texture! I mean, in your face, glowy, blindingly neon textures? I’d buy those in a white sandy beach minute! 🌴🐚🌴

You can find China Glaze at your local Sally Beauty Supply, Ulta, and many other beauty supply stores beside http://www.chinaglaze.com. And Nubar lacquers at http://www.bynubar.com. A special thank you to my sweet YouTube and IG friend, Sodalovestar for the gorgeous Nubar mini of Krystal! It’s a gorgeous holo flaky topcoat and perfect over neons!

I bought the China Glaze with my own money and all opinions are my own.

Keepin’ it frosty

Keepin' it frosty

This is just a prelude to my mani for Mani Mondays, which I’ll be posting later today. I’m kind of busy decorating the house for Christmas today.

So for starters, the color coat is the gorgous Ultra Violet Femme by Ulta Salon Formula. It’s one of the 5/$5 set I bought recently. The formula went on smooth and only one coat here! Then I applied a thin coat of Sally Hansen Triple Shine in the flaky top coat called Hypnautical. I’ve seen this combo from some other manis and I just knew I had to try this.

The accent nail is topped with a thin coat of Luxe and Lush by China Glaze. Later I’ll be painting a snowman on my thumb for my Mani Mondays theme. Now THAT will be a challenge!

Disclaimer: My cuticles have been atrocious lately and the photos are still exposing how bad this cold dry air has made them. 😦 Sorry they look so gnarly)!
